Problem installing Photo Explosion

Posted by mama haahn on Jan 25, 2008 Report abuse

I have installed on another computer, which is older and went to install on the newer computer and get interrupted message. I have gone to the tech support - they indicated that it is something with my driver. Asked them if there is a work around they said no. I can't believe it. I have never had such a hard time installing software. My daughter says the software is awesome! Help.

Frustrated Mom
Comment by mama haahn, posted on Jan 25, 2008 I have removed the antivirus software and I can not change the operating system without having a file folder to click on. The install failure takes you so far and then backs it back out. Any thing further?

    When doing the install, it will take the install so far and then indicate that the install has been interrupted and it tells you that the system has not been modified. I have gone to their tech and they indicated it was a problem with the drive this is only after they have sent me a replacement diskette. Any of the fixes that I have seen on this sight do not pretain to me as a folder is not placed there for me to adjust. Usually I can find fixes to this problem, but to no avail. I signed up for assistant help and it is all of the same stuff that I have tried before. Thanks for any help.

    I just purchased Photo Explosion Deluxe 3.0. It will not install on my Vista machine. Tech support says that they are aware of the error and do not have a fix right now. Man that's a crock!! Why in the heck do they put out a program when they know it has issues. When I called, the tech asked first thing, is this an error R6034?. So they know they have and issue. Anyway, when I try and install it a window pops up and says a program in inproperly accessed Visual basic file MSIEXEC.EXE run error R6034. Does anyone with more brains than these people know how to fix this?

  • mama haahn Jan 28, 2008

    I guess I am kind of looking for a good fix on this problem. I had the computer drivers all updated and checked for bugfixes, their tech team is useless. I really want to use this software on my computer and not on my daughter's, there has to be a fix for this and of course, I can't take the software back.

    Just frustrated!!!

    Same problem here...They have sent me 2 install disks at different times and still nothing. They claim they cannot create the problem there because all there machines are running it and they have no problems but based on the tons of people having the same problem, I would say their programmers and designers need another course in customer satisfaction and fixes. I cannot take mine back either and like I told them, they must have put a great deal of time and money into their packaging which catches the eye however it does not seem to catch the computer......I have uninstalled all my spyware , virus and firewall programs and still the same old saying " The wizard was interrupted.....etc etc etc Duh!

  • geebee1234 Feb 16, 2008

    Exactly the same problem. Disabled start-up items. Shut down anti-virus, firewall and spyware programs and the installation still hangs up. Had disc 1 repalced and still same problem. Running Windows XP and I have no problems at all with any other installs.

I suggest a class action lawsuit. Clearly this product does not install on Vista (as advertised) - I'm having same problem and same run around.
Wouldn't mind if the packaging did not say Vista and I tried it anyway but I bought explicitly to run on my Vista machine.

I'm a sofware developer and still can't find a workaround without tearing up this OS. Clearly never tested on a Vista platform.

I had an R6034 (MSVCR80.dll) error on a completely different product. Something to do with the autorun on my HP Laserjet installation CD trying to use a microsoft C/C++ runtime library that wasn't in the expected place.

My solution was to bypass the autorun program on the cd by double clicking the setup.exe file directly, at which time the install worked fine.

My program photo explosion deluxe version 3 will not opened when downloaded to my new computer that operates windows 7. what should I do to get this program workining, I do not like version 4 of photo...

What I understand is that your photo explosion deluxe is a windows xp software. Since it is not working readily out of the box in windows 7 then what you could do is install windows xp mode for windows 7. Windows xp mode allows xp software to be installed and windows 7. What you need to do is just download windows xp mode and install it. After which you could then install that software on there. Just make sure to uninstall your current installation of photo explosion deluxe before you do this.
Here is the link to the download for windows xp mode:
And Here is the link to some of their videos on how to use xp mode so that you could understand further how to set it up:

This used to work perfectly on windows XP. I now have windows 7 & after downloading the Photo Explosion 2.0, it won't open & the programme just freezes. Help.

Downloading means you retrive any files and save to your PC/Laptop from any web source!
Installing means you install any software/programs to run on your PC/Laptop.

As for your software "Photo Explosion 2.0" could not run on Win 7 due to software "Compatibility Issues".

You can try, using "Win 7 compatibility mode" installing older software read this LINK

"There is no guarantees older software will work using Win 7 compatibility mode!"

Hope it helps.

Installing Photo Explosion Deluxe

Did you look in C:\Program Files\Common Files folder?
Some programs will place shared files in here.

If that does not work, download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility from:

Install it, then run it from Programs. If you see either of these programs have the utility remove it.
